This Amethyst Angel Keyring/Handbag Charm is made from the Amethyst crystal point and therefore has a combination of white and purple quartz crystal.
Amethyst is one of the best know semi precious stones, according to Greek mythology, Amethyst was a young virgin who became the object of wrath of the Greek God Dionysus after he became intoxicated with red wine. When Amethyst cried out to the Goddess Diana for help, she immediately turned the girl into white, shimmering quartz . When Dionysus saw this he felt remorse for his actions, his tears dripped into his goblet of red wine. The goblet overturned, and the red wine spilled all over the white rock, saturating it until it became the purple quartz we call Amethyst.
